Shorting Gibson Energy shares

There are currently 677,133 Gibson Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Gibson Energy's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% down from 790,473 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Gibson Energy shares can be evaluated.

Gibson Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Gibson Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gibson Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gibson Energy shares traded daily (recently around 312042.85714286). Gibson Energy's SIR currently stands at 2.17. In other words for every 100,000 Gibson Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2170 shares are currently held short.

However Gibson Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gibson Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gibson Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gibson Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gibson Energy shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gibson Energy shares, roughly 5 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Gibson Energy.

Gibson Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.21% of net profits

Recently Gibson Energy has paid out, on average, around 2.21% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gibson Energy shareholders could enjoy a 5.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gibson Energy's case, that would currently equate to about C$1.38 per share.

While Gibson Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Gibson Energy is investing more in its future growth.

Gibson Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 15 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Gibson Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gibson Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$16.5373 up to C$26.1879. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GEI.TO volatility(beta: 1.5)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Gibson Energy's is 1.4954. This would suggest that Gibson Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
